Q - question

How to display cyrillic or special math symbols in a DCL dialog?

A - answer By default, all DCL dialogs in AutoCAD LISP application are defined in the ANSI code set and so they are controlled by the Windows language settings (codepage).

Since AutoCAD version 2013 you can also use DCL files in the UTF-8 encoding and so you can combine different character sets and special symbols from Unicode.

Since AutoCAD 2021 you can also use Unicode text strings in LISP applications (depends on LISPSYS).
